Fields marked with an asterisk (*) must be filled in.

How can we help?

  • In VPL’s definition, local authors and poets are eligible authors and poets who reside at York Region, Peel Region and Toronto.
  • We offer free space of either a lobby table or a room. Please pick one that suits your needs the best. If you have a list of guests who would like to invite to your book launch, booking a room for your book launch will work well. However, if you don't have a list of guests in mind, please consider booking a book signing table at the lobby, as it will be more visible to the public.
  • We offer only one free space booking system-wide.
  • We offer only one free book launch per title per author.
  • Booking should be made at least one month in advance and it will depend on room availability to meet your desired date.
  • You will have the opportunity to sell your published works, but no solicitation is permitted.
  • VPL will offer limited promotional support only. If you have a poster for promotion, please upload the digital image at the end of this form. At the discretion of the Librarian II, Literacy and Readers’ Advisory, the poster will be forwarded to the hosting branch to be posted on the community board. We will also announce your book launch or book signing on the VPL social media channels.
